Unhappy, loss of direction, work related stress

Explore your thoughts, thoughts create feelings

More and more people are struggling with the daily stresses that life brings.

You might be struggling to deal with events happening in your life whether they are events from you past, present or worries about the future.

My role as a counsellor is to support you on your journey. I offer a space that is yours, a place where you are free to talk openly about you.  A safe environment where you will not be judged.  It can be difficult to know where to start when you are feeling overwhelmed by things going on in your life.  People struggle with many issues including guilt, rejection, loneliness, isolation, stress, depression, feelings of confusion, fear, lack of control in their life and sickness. You might be a survivor of abuse but are struggling with the feelings it has left you with.  Whatever is causing you to look for the support of a counsellor is unique to you.  We all handle things differently, we respond and behaviour differently.

I use an integrative counselling approach to my work specifically designed for the individual.  This includes Person Centred and Psychodynamic Therapy.  I am also trained in NLP and Hypnotherapy.  I use NLP and Hypnotherapy as tools to support my work if the client and I believe that it could be beneficial.

The first session will be an assessment session.  It gives both of us the opportunity to get to know each other a little.  It is important that we feel comfortable working with each other.

Counselling can help to empower you to move forward and take the steps you need to take to move towards a better quality of life for yourself. Yes, it can be difficult at times. It takes a commitment from you, at times it can be psychologically demanding, and it takes financial commitment and patience.

What counselling is not.

My role is not to fix you or make things better for you.  Counselling allows you to think about your own feelings, beliefs and behaviours.  It supports you to make the changes you want to make.

When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us.
